There were plenty of big news stories of 2013, from Kirk and Rasheeda‘s marriage breakdown on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, to Stevie J. and Joseline‘s marriage, to the CrazySexyCool success of the TLC biopic. But along with those big stories came even greater hashtags and trending topics. While fans watched the biggest VH1 shows this year, you also followed along on Twitter and gave us some of the best, funniest reading material in the form of entertaining trending topics. Without context, some of these make no sense at all, but when you go back and watch the scenes that they came from, it’s fun to relive them. Check out our list below to try and remember why all of Twitter was buzzing about “Polar Bear” during the TLC movie and talking about “lettuce” during Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
“Life Partner Gang” trended during the season two finale of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta because it’s the phrase Stevie J used to describe the fluid, boundary-free relationships he has with the various women in his life. The only problem? It’s never a great idea to ask your two most recent loves to enter into a weird three-way relationship that neither of them want any part of.
